Miller SoundClash Sets New Party Standard For Zimbabwe
This past Saturday an exclusive by invite-only party was held at Harare’s Glass House sponsored by Miller Genuine Draft Africa.
On the night they brought the winner of the Miller SoundClash Dj challenge for Zimbabwe RayDizz, Otis the Flow, Dj Rax plus South African heavyweights Euphonik, Fresh, Khuli Chana, DJ Naves & SPHEctacula. Botswana winner Dj King was also there but just to party after he’d had his moments of pagan madness the night before in Gaborone.
The organisers brought the party to town, with a proper Las Vegas style throw down. We’re talking lights, lasers, dope music, proper sound and great people.
The thing of incredible beauty was the way the organisers re-imagined the space at Glass House. Their challenge was how they would fit in about 1,500 people – in the end it was about 1,000 who turned up – and for those who know the venue they will know this is easier said than done. They did it in spectacualr style, extending the space further out creating an almost warehouse effect.
Then there was the stage, the dancers, oh the dancers. Yes the dancers. And did we mention the stage. Screens, lighting, lasers, chutes, dancers, sound clash.
The socialites and artists came out. We spotted Cynthia Mare who was dressed to the nines, Take Fizzo, Zam & Mbofs from StarFM, Simba Tagz, ZiFM’s MisRed, Support Local Music’s Dzikamai Chibaya, Stunner just to name a few. They all seemed to have a time to remember.
Each of the entertainers gave us an explosive hour. An hour of pure niceness and yes, the crowd absolutely went mental when Khuli did his verse off Tswa Daar. Pretty sure most people don’t know what it means but they love it all the same.
The crowd could have been bigger but that is Zimbabwe for you. The next time they hear Miller has a party though, they know they will be in for a world class show. We know the pictures have people catching feelings.
Shout out to Grant Bester, Thato, Gordon, Leslie, Ashley and the rest of the team for an unforgettable night. They’ve just thrown down the gauntlet. Miller knows how to party and whoever does anything of that size next has a standard to live up to.
If you weren’t there, sorry.
